The man was identified by BART police as 24-year-old Yeiner Garizabalo. Friends said Tuesday he goes by Yeiner Perez and is a dedicated acrobat and performer. The episode, they said, was strongly out of character.
“He’s been through a lot of stress — he seems to have been having a breakdown,” said Slim Chance, who leads the Berkeley circus troupe ClownSnotBombs. Perez was a member from January to early May. “That seems to be the tip of it right there. I just can’t tell you anything more because I don’t really know what his state is. It’s not at all like his normal character.”
Chance said Perez, normally a “workaholic acrobat,” stopped showing up to the group’s practices several days before the episode.
“I don’t think it was anything with drugs,” Chance said. “I don’t know. We’re thinking he may have even had a stroke sometime last year. We’ve been trying to piece it together ourselves.”

Fired from his circus job. :frown:

Anti-gentrification block party with Google bus pinatas. (Google and several other tech companies have chartered buses that haul gentrifiers from SF down to silicon valley every day and are kind of a symbol of tech company backlash.)

So I'm gonna take a guess this guy was a former gymnast, because he was doing some killer gymnast crap. I mean NICE crap. Albeit he was butt ass naked but hey you know. The splits on the turn style thing to jumping on the old guy with a yellow jacket was HILARIOUS!!! Anyway, FLIP THE CAMERA to the side. GEZZ!!

Whining about people calling it "San Fran"
People on bikes carrying their dogs in a backpack after work

I've been to San Francisco several times and once while there referred to the city as "Frisco," which I had seen in the media somewhere. I thought the local to whom I was speaking was going to kill me. Since then, I never say "Frisco" in San Francisco.

Ha. I'm staying in a different neighborhood every 5-6 days while I'm in DC. Adams Morgan will be fun for this kind of thing, but I really can't wait for Noma.

I don't consider anything in this thread to be bad or a reason to not visit.

probably not too different, really. It's a very SF thing to think you're more unique than you really are.
